PALM DESERT - A valley resident turned 101-years-old today and KMIR6 News surprised him with a special celebration. The birthday boy's name is Sam Shaft, and he says KMIR6 made his 101st birthday!
Sam's best friend came to the KMIR6 studios, and asked us to help make sams big day extra special. We car-pooled over to Shaft's house in Palm Desert, and presented him with a cake and Sam's Club Membership Card. We also gave him our NBC chimes.
"KMIR, I want to thank you. I want to thank all of you- every one of you for coming!" says Shaft.
"It's another example of how we want to work with all of our community to make the Coachella Valley a better place to live, and we are honored that we can be part of Sam's special day," says KMIR^ News General Manager Craig Marrs.
All of us here at KMIR6 would like to give a special thanks to Denise Flowers, who is Sam Club's Store Manager, Junior Sanchez , and Vincent Romano for the generous gift of a membership card, and for making the cake so special.
